passing. we have a central world parliament of religion, the follow up we've had it's moving in conventionalities. other elements we might see here besides buddhism, are middle eastern traditions same situation. with islamic baha'i simply haven't been here as long there is some tensions with islam as we have seen, because of the political struggles between the middle east and the united states over a variety of issues. but more conventionality here, islam is now the second great faith in the united states way behind christianity but, it's surpassed judaism as the numbers here. we've had wonderful experiences with new age religion though note-- remember how the ramtha people and cynthia jones kind bridled at that term new age. they didn't particularly like it so it's a sociological term. but new religious movements, new spiritualities that are emerging, they are new, they are different. if it's different let's hate it. no! let's not. that's the attitude that we want to overcome here just because it happens to be new. skeptics, atheist, humanist, some of the most religious people

in unusual ways. >> isn't time a factor in so many religions that heavens gate they seize on the comet back then. and with the millennium coming up, people are screwing a round assessing their faith, - is this the end? and the fundamentalist are seizing on el ninos destruction of lands - fire and so, with the millennium i think people want to identify themselves with some faith, i'm here the millennium is coming, where is my status? >> and you're quite right and we are seeing all kinds of religious activity around this time and in this society it's spinning off cults and sects, it really actually is. i don't know how long lived they will be but you have a christian groups who are seeing in those terms. but there is a whole other millennial vision that actually can go back to roots and the aquarian age of the hippies in the 60s which sees the new world, the new age, the new order the new light coming down, so it's a fascinating thing. but time, historical events certainly spawn, it's like putting a catalyst into our soupy ecological mix, it creates more stuff bubbling up and comin

unified by religion ? again, household excavations provided answers. physical anthropologist rebecca storey. in all the compounds that have been excavated, there has always been a central courtyard. and in the middle of it, we generally find some kind of architectural feature. now, in this particular compound, it's a very elaborate and very beautiful one -- look at the detailing on the stone, and also look at the little ornaments on top of it. there are fragments that shows that it once was plastered and painted. so we have to remember that it would have been completely brighter and much more colorful, and really looked splendid. keach: these strange and splendid structures were altars. but who was being worshiped here ? in 1980, rebecca storey and dolph widmer excavated a residential compound in a neighborhood of the city now called tlajinga. the evidence showed people had lived in the compound for close to 500 years. underneath the central altar, archaeologists discovered several skeletons, buried decades apart. storey: when we excavated under the central courtyards of tlaj

that culture -- the social organization, the political institutions, even the ideology, the religion of a people. from my perspective, the economy of a group is one of the most powerful determinants of human behavior. keach: to archaeologists, all economies fall somewhere on a spectrum from simple to complex. in a simple economy, people grow or gather all the food they eat. they make all the things they use. households in such simple economies are almost completely self-sufficient. at the other end of the spectrum are highly complex economies in which people specialize in one particular job, like these shoe salesmen in morocco. specialization means people are no longer self-sufficient, but depend on each other. the shoe salesmen are dependent on the shoemakers, and the shoemakers are dependent on the tanners, and so on. this dependence on others makes society in general more complex, so specialization is a measure of society's overall complexity. archaeologists find evidence of specialization everywhere -- in the buildings and sculpture of ancient cities, and in crafts like elegant j
